In the north of Nepal, in the middle of the Himalayan mountains, was the small kingdom Lo, which now belongs to Nepal and is called Mustang by them. The capital is Lo Mantang. For hours we have been driving on a gravel plain in the valley of Kali Gandaki. The floor, 1300 meters above sea level, is flanked by 2 eight-thousanders, by the Daulaghiri and the Anapurna massif, and this part is at 4,000 meters the deepest gorge on earth. ...

The new road now connects this place, which seems to date back to the Middle Ages, with the rest of the world, opening the gates to an easily predictable development, and even if this means that an archaic way of life is disintegrating, the people here welcome the change - which they consider to be progress, - because it makes their lives easier.
